By  | 

Nicki and Willow join forces for Elle‘s annual Women in Music issue, along with Adele, Feist, Jennifer Hudson, and Florence Welch. Willow’s the first 10-year-old in history to land in the acclaimed fashion magazine (okay, we kinda made that up), and she totally holds her own next to chart-topping heavyweights like Aretha Franklin.

Willow Smith on her full length album: “It’s going to be a party beat. I think you’re gonna like it!”

Jennifer Hudson on her humble beginnings: “In high school I was like, ‘Well, these are drag queens lip-synching, and I can really sing; why can’t I go up there?’ I would win all the talent shows.”

Adele on the love songs written about her ex: “We’re not on great enough terms for me to say, ‘Oh, have you heard my record? It’s number one; did you know?”

Nicki Minaj on hip hop: “I always wanted to play with the boys. I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character – a superhero.”
